It's a reasonable question and the answer may have something to do with how different generations view 'privacy', but have you never had a discussion with people regarding sexuality and used your own sexuality to qualify a point you are making?

That is what Zarakitty did in her OP, and people who have responded in this thread with a "ZOMG, why tell people your bisexual?!?!" either didn't read the OP or didn't understand it. If I was to state in a conversation about prejudice "Well, when I tell people I'm agnostic some make a point of berating me for 'sitting on the fence'.", I am using my belief to emphasise a point, just as the OP did.

It is not the same as saying "Hey, look at me everybody I'm AGNOSTIC!!!!"

i think lots of straight people imagine homosexuality/bisexuality as just sex, maybe they don't understand that gays and bisexuals can feel amazing love towards someone of the same sex, like how they can love someone the different sex. im not sure if what i just said made any sense at all, but i tried to explain it the best i could. also, i think some heterosexuals (not all) think bisexual means your incapable of being monogamous.


GREEDY :lol:


LOL!! Indeed, I am a greedy little thing!! lock up your daughters...and sons.. :P

I understand what you mean about sex and love :) a lot of people don't understand it's the same for us as it is for them  :)

Zara,

Like the great philosopher Shane McCutcheon once said:

"Sexuality is fluid, whether you're gay or you're straight or you're bisexual, you just go with the flow."

Personally I cannot understand why people feel the need to judge others. What someone is sexually or what they believe has nothing to do with what kind of person they are. I have family who are bisexual and I have told them I don't care what their sexual preferences are at the end of the day they'll still be apart of my family and I will still love them. All I want is for them to be happy and whatever they do stay safe. I am a Christian however I do not believe in trying to make others believe what I do. :)

In life you have to go after what you want, not sit around and wait for things to come to you.

I find that sexuality is a lot less complicated than advertised. you're attracted to whatever/whoever you're attracted to - simple as that

I agree,
it' seems to be about the rate of returns....What I mean is that If anyone goes about life shouting/declaring one thing or any other, you'll come across opposition somewheres along the line. Be it your Footy team, origami class, crochet crafting, vegetarianism, Clothing styles, sexuality... Anything.
You name it, some tw** is going to give you Sh** about it at some point.

I used to argue the toss, thinking it was my duty to put them straight...Ha! no pun intended..... but it only works with the open. Now I have come to understand, some people just got to hate on others and will use any excuse to do so.
This problem isn't yours, don't take it on.
Yet understand, you can not change anyone else's mind. Only they can.
If they are open to hearing, then great, enjoy but it's really not about you...... Its about them. Their hang ups, ignorances and prejudices. Not yours.
I hope that helps and i wish you all the best.

It's been so long since I was single I didn't think about it from that point of view. I guess it would be a lot easier to get a date if someone knows your sexual orientation, ZaraKitty. :lol:

I personally don't care what sex someone is, where they are from, what they beleive, like and dislike. As long as the person has good morals, is polite, respectful to others and doesn't do anything to harm anyone else then I really don't care.

I would like everyone to be like that to be honest, but some people jsut aren't.

Even if you disagree with what someone else beleives or does you shouldn't hate them for it and you certianly should not try to forcefully to change them. Nobody has the right to force others to beleive or think like them.

OP, I've heard Australia is pretty religious and sexually conservative.

Where I live people are pretty chill with sexuality and attraction and I've never seen anyone react negatively towards someone identifying as bi. In fact, bisexuality is so common here, it makes me wonder if most people have the capacity to be attracted to their own sex, just that some have never entertained the thought. Whenever there's a political debate on TV, if Knut Arild Hareide is in it, I always point out that "he's so adorable", the only response i ever get is "yeah, I know".

Hahah oh yes, I used to wait and wait for a pretty lady to come and ask me to a date, but then I realized nobody knew! But I got myself out there :D

It's multicultural, and the people from other cultures strongly think I'm the devil. I went a multicultural school, and being bisexual or gay meant getting bashed or bullied.
ahahh.. where do you live? I'll have to come visit >.< that man is indeed attractive, and the whole area knows! LOL

It is unfortunate that you and others get bullied and shunned for such things, but in the same way you don't care to have preconceived notions made about you based on your sexuality, you should try not to do the same thing to others based on their culture, religious beliefs, or any other thing.

I can understand having a general preconceived notion about some groups, but it's important to remember that groups are composed of individuals, and as individuals we all have our own unique thoughts, beliefs, and views on things.

I mentioned earlier that I believe in God, but I certainly don't label those who hold other religious beliefs (or none at all) as "devil worshipers," "baby killers," or "evil." I don't think badly of homosexuals, bisexuals, or transgendered people either.

I form my truest thoughts about others based on my interactions with them as individuals.

I've never had the need to tell anyone about my sexuality. Please enlighten me, do some members of the LGTB community freely admit and overtly advertise their sexuality in order to elicit some sort of response? (I refer in part, to so-called 'Gay Pride' festivals etc.

PS - This is a genuine question - not a homophobic one.

This.  

I would consider myself straight but for one  same sex interlude years ago.  I don't feel the need to state my sexual preferences to anyone and think a degree of discretion is best most of the time, but then I'm a private person by nature.  With age, comes the need to not have to explain yourself.

You have nothing to fear as long as your a good person.

The complete lack of evidence is the surest sign that the conspiracy is working.

i dont see why people care what sexuality others are (unless you are interested in dating them and want to know whether they would be interested). some people get way too annoyed over things about people that is none of their business, like who other people fall in love with or what they do in the bedroom. im sure gay/bisexual people dont care what the homophobic people get up to in bed, so why do they care about what gay people do?

In some parts of the world they do not like same sex marriage or lifestyle and sometimes can be bad and they see those people as devil worshippers, even bi people
